Smoking cannabis at concerts should not be stopped at the hand of some employee of an establishment you’re paying to be inside of. Cannabis does not incite rowdy behavior, it doesn’t encourage people to get overly drunk, and it doesn’t cause people to die, and yet these same venues profit off of alcohol sales.
With that said, we’re still left with security guards who hassle cannabis users upon entry of venues, where they’re usually free (and even encouraged) to smoke when inside. Aside from using a discrete dab pen to consume, here are few tips on getting your cannabis inside a concert or festival:
Stashing your cannabis inside of a cigarette pack allows you to seem like an absolutely innocent tobacco user, when in fact two or three of those cigarettes are packed with weed to either be lit or be rerolled for later. You can also put your cannabis on the bottom of the pack and put your cigarettes on top, therefore seeming like you only have a legit pack of cigarettes on you.
Loose Tobacco Pouch:
Using the loose pouch feature of a roll-your-own cigarette pack to your advantage makes getting your greens inside very easy. It’s fool proof as most people won’t question you when you’re seen rolling up, especially if you have a tobacco rolled decoy available to deter those that may be weary.
The lowest part of your body happens to be a perfect spot to bypass the pat-down process because no one is going to make you go as far as to take your shoes off when entering a show. Think about it: if this was protocol, it would take way too long to get in.
Call it your crotch, belt area, or whatever name you have for it, but right under the button of your pants is a perfect place to “stash your hash”. Given that you’re wearing a belt, someone won’t be able to detect a soft bag of cannabis underneath a buckle.
Taped to Your Leg:
It’s pretty self explanatory, but if you have joints in a bag, no one is going to be able to tell if you strap it to the inside of your pants. If someone asks what it is, be sure to give them a weird look and ask them what they’re talking about. Actually, do that every time they ask what anything is, ever!
Small Jean Pocket:
The pocket that we rarely use other than to put our one-hitter in is actually a great stash spot because not too many people know about its functionality as a mini-pocket. But seriously, try it out sometime. It’s worked for me everytime.
Behind Phone Case:
If you have a roomy phone case and can find a spot to stash a joint or some nugs in, go for it. This is never going to get checked, unless you flat out tell someone you stash your stuff in your phone case.
In your hand:
It sounds strange but having everything out of your pockets when you walk past security will often work. Make sure that have your wallet and phone in your grasp so that they can’t see the goods underneath.
It’s very impolite to look through someone else’s wallet, and therefore you’ll often get away with putting a joint or some greens in the most sacred part of your common belongings. Plus, you hopefully won’t lose your wallet, and therefore your pot.
